Residential Update: Context, Supply and Affordability Short course


It's been widely reported that in recent decades the UK has failed to build sufficient homes to meet demand. This has led to an increasingly unaffordable housing market with many people excluded from home ownership.

This workshop will provide context and understanding of this complex issue, as well as broader economic and social analysis. Case studies will include examination of a medium sized housing association, including its recent urban and rural development programmes, together with an analysis of the Association’s development appraisal methodology.
